Macy's Sunday Story Time: St. Nicholas Visits for Christmas
Sun, December 23rd, 2012 | 11:30 am

Recommended for children ages 4 - 7.

Each week New-York Historical Society educators read one to two engaging picture books around a theme. The themes are related to New York City, American history, current holidays, or new exhibitions.

'Twas story hour at the New-York Historical Society and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse! That’s because everyone loves listening to this classic Christmas poem. After reading about old St. Nick, head upstairs to view the desk where Clement Clark Moore may have written A Visit from St. Nicholas.
